Graduate's knowledge

Graduates of the specialization are university-educated electrical engineers with knowledge of industrial automation, computer systems, microprocessor techniques, robotics and information systems. This knowledge is supported by a good theoretical basis of mathematics, theoretical electrical engineering, theory of automatic control and measurement. Graduates are profiled into the following areas

  • Automation and Robotics - The subjects are appropriately designed so that a student gains as much information as possible from the field of industrial automation, industrial communications, and the basics of robotics. The knowledge spectrum should provide the graduate with a good applicability to employers dealing with industrial control systems.
  • Computers and Information Systems in Control - This specialization emphasizes embedded microprocessor control systems and computer information systems. Graduates are ready to work with employers involved in the development of microprocessor and information systems.
  • Virtual Instrumentation and Measurement - The composition of the subjects profiles the graduate into the field of virtual instrumentation, automated measurement and testing systems.

Graduate's skills

The graduate thus not only masters the so-called lower level of control characterized by various means of automation or measurement techniques, but he also masters a higher level of control characterized by various software means, human-machine interface, including application software for control systems. Thus, the combination of knowledge is highly requested in the labor market and it is unique.

Career paths

Graduate's employment

The employability of graduates in the labor market is excellent. The number of graduates is currently unable to meet requirements raised by companies.

Typical employers of program graduates are as follows:

  • Companies engaged in engineering in automation, measurement, development of embedded electronic systems.
  • Companies engaged in mechanical production, production of electronic products, companies being active in metallurgy and many others, where automation and digitization of production have to be tackled.
  • Due to the fact that the specialization is quite broad and it combines the knowledge of electrical engineering and computer science, graduates are also often employed in companies dealing with information technologies, communication technologies, etc.
